      well it depends..what kind of 3d editor would you be using and would you happen to know what kind of card your motherboard supports..obviously AGP but I would reccomend buying a $150 card like

      thats just an example, but reading reviews from Cnet.com was very helpful to me. I am no expert but I have done my share of research…so someone correct me if i’m wrong here:

      One last comment is that you wont need a $500 high end card for 3d titiling. They are only used for advanced gaming.

MFT, or micro four thirds, is a popular mount style used by many manufacturers in conjunction with the micro 4/3 sensor. It’s good to keep in mind that micro four thirds camera systems use a smaller sensor.
